The Umina Beach branch of the Country Women’s Association has made 11 plum puddings for Christmas at Mary Mac’s Place in Woy Woy.
Branch publicity officer Ms Margaret Key said many donations of Christmas cake and pudding ingredients had been received.
“The response from Peninsula residents was fantastic.
“In fact, overwhelming generosity is how I would describe the response,” Ms Key said.
“Last Saturday we made 11 plum puddings, and this weekend it will be Christmas cakes.”
Ms Key said club member Ms Kay Kennaugh taught the members a new way to cook the puddings, by using extra-large oven bags to wrap and boil the puddings instead of using calico fabric.
“It makes for a very tasty pudding, and no flavour boils away,” Ms Key said.
